Chris Faraone and Jason Pramas host weekly streaming program

On Friday, DigBoston’s top editors Chris Faraone and Jason Pramas launched the pilot episode of a new weekly streaming public affairs show: InDIGnation. The program will feature interviews with interesting people from all walks of life in the Greater Boston area—with a special focus on local and state politics.

The first guest was Rep. Mike Connolly (D – Cambridge) talking about the travesty of starting to “reopen” the state this coming week after weeks of a stay-at-home order, and what’s up with housing policy during the pandemic.
